This year marks 100 years since women won the right to vote in the UK. Though we’ve come a long way since then, 2017 proved to be a momentous year for highlighting issues that some women may face across all industries – including ours. One of the responsibilities that we, as a magazine, have is to carry on the conversations with the aim to improve equality. There are so many ways to help, and Animated Women UK is just one organisation supporting women and promoting equal representation, so this issue we’ve brought them in to curate a special gallery. We’re celebrating women across a variety of artist roles, with expert tips so you can achieve amazing art yourselves.
We’ve also harnessed the force to bring you some of the behind-the-scenes secrets of Star Wars and ILM, as well as jumping into the virtual and mixed reality field with REWIND – the award-winning creative agency based in St Albans, UK.
Plus we’ve got some amazing Maya, Nuke, Blender and arch vis tutorials to take you to new levels of working. Make sure you study these techniques.
Tickets are also available now for our event, Vertex. Head to vertexconf.com for more. Enjoy the issue!
